    You may never need another lettuce variety again. As the name suggests, this is one you can sow and grow at any time of the year: as a general rule expect to pick your lettuces around 10 weeks after sowing. The butterhead-type heads are dense and crisp, with creamy-yellow hearts and an excellent flavour. A heritage variety introduced before 1870.

  • Growing Instructions:Early in the season sow into trays or modules in the greenhouse or on a windowsill. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart and harden off before planting out, allowing 30cm between plants. Later in the season sow direct where they are to grow in shallow drills. Protect from slugs and cover early and late sowings with a cloche. A late sowing made in August in a coldframe or in the greenhouse borders will grow on right through winter.

  • Sow: February-August

  • Harvest: April-October

  • Approximate quantity: 1400 seeds.

    Comments about lettuce 'All Year Round':

    If you only grow one type of lettuce this is the one to guarantee a good supply of crispy fresh lettuce for a very long season. Was still picking up until first frost . This alongside mixed leaves guarantee a great salad bowl

      • A:

        You can start chitting your early and maincrop seed potatoes in February, but the best time to plant is in early to mid spring. As for growing vegetables in your polytunnels, you have lots of options. Spinach, kale, and some varieties of lettuce will live through the winter in a polytunnel. Certain kinds of onion work well from an autumn sowing, and you'll get a much earlier crop than if you'd waited until spring. Other possibilities are cabbage, Pak Choy, Chinese cabbage, and most root crops. Leeks, beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips and radishes, can be sown for winter harvest
